A chemical reactor network (CRN) is developed and applied to a dry low emissions (DLE) industrial gas turbine combustor with the purpose of predicting exhaust emissions. The development of the CRN model is guided by reacting flow computational fluid dynamics (CFD) using the University of Washington (UW) eight-step global mechanism. The network consists of 31 chemical reactor elements representing the different flow and reaction zones of the combustor. The CRN is exercised for full load operating conditions with variable pilot flows ranging from 35% to 200% of the neutral pilot. The NOpilot. The NOx and the CO emissions are predicted using the full GRI 3.0 chemical kinetic mechanism in the CRN. The CRN results closely match the actual engine test rig emissions output. Additional work is ongoing and the results from this ongoing research will be presented in future publications.
